This was our first visit and we were extremely impressed. We will definitely return. The brussel sprouts are outstanding. I had a flat iron steak which was very tender and flavorful. (We went to a more expensive, upscale, well-known restaurant a few days earlier. My mother ordered a filet mignon that was not at all as tender or flavorful as the flat iron steak I had at Bo-Beau.) . My wife had salmon which was cooked perfectly. The ambiance is comfortable and attractive. This is a wonderful restaurant.

The brunch was good but nothing special, a bit underwhelming. The steak I got was supposed to be medium rare but came out well done and was very tough. The poached eggs were on point. The skillet potatoes were Ok, same with the beignets.
The brussel sprouts are outstanding as usual, and rescued the meal. The fried chicken and waffles were good but nothing special. The sausage biscuits with gravy were the same.
Service was excellent. It started sprinkling for a bit outside and our food got a little wet because it's not covered, so be careful if it's going to rain and you're sitting outside like us.

Love the Ambiance of the place! Staff are really friend and I believe the manager at that time was very helpful and attentive to our needs. Makes sure we have everything set perfectly on our table and they are accommodating to kids and pet friendly patio.
Overall I had a very good experience, the food was amazing, the staff are very courteous, price was reasonable for the place, the food and the location.
I would recommend for dates, family dinner or happy hour.

The vibe is fun. My husband and I ate here for the first time for an Anniversary Dinner. He loved his dinner, a kettle of steamed mussels! I ordered the flat iron steak. The steak was cooked perfectly. The sides were disappointing, bland. We were unable to have any condiments delivered to our table-really needed salt and sugar etc.

Normal we love this place... this night was another story. Food was good, but missing ingredients and missing items asked for to sub. Service was super slow, our server is awesome, but he was super busy with another large table. That large table was so loud and has a few kids that were going crazy. Their parents seemed to busy out talking each other to calm their dreaming kids. Drinks took forever, food took a while and the bill couldn't come fast enough. Sad, normally we love eating here. We'll give it another try, maybe outside away from large parties. The manager did talk to us an apologized for the meal and slow service. Seriously, we have never had a bad experience here! This was just a really odd night and everything seemed off.

The recipes at Bo Beau are delicious. I am inspired to try something different every time. This time we had the Beef Bourguignon and the seasonal vegan dish, something with tofu and peanut ginger sauce. Both were amazing. My daughter had "the usual" (her favorite kid's meal, which she often asks for between visits). The patio seating is so pleasant. Not noisy at all and surprisingly roomy. Our group of 6 had room to spare at the table and could easily talk.

My date stood me up, but that didn't stop me from a wonderful time at Bo-beau kitchen. I had dinner at the bar and bartender Vasilios was great and Assistant Manager Sarah was very generous and kind. Meal was amazing. All in all a wonderful experience.

As always, a fine dining experience! When they forgot one item we ordered, the manager was very quick to explain, and apologise. We will definitely continue to go there. We enjoy bringing out of town guests because we know they will be impressed!

B-B is a great neighborhood eatery. Starting with the APPs. Best ever Brussel Sprouts!!!
The flatbreads are very tasty, everyone of them. Don't miss the mussels and fries that a great frenchy bistro should have. I love fish and it is prepared t perfection,especially the Salmon.
You can have craft cocktails and drink your dinner ,they are so good . Bartender " V " is awesome, he makes a mean cocktail! Don't miss Steve for your sever, he will laugh you silly!
I could go on about the Decor and the outdoor garden and the real school bus for the kiddies!
See for yourself.

The ambiance was pretty nice but we were very disappointed with the food. We tried a number of different items and they were all bland and mediocre. He flatbread especially stood out as being floury, undercooked and tasting like absolutely nothing. We also tried jalapeño bacon deviled eggs that weren't spicy at all and just sort of tasted like hard boiled eggs with bacon bits sprinkled on them. I was really looking forward to eating here but left feeling like I had wasted my money.

The food is quite good but pretty predictable, also, in terms of menu choice. Would love to see new dishes offered! The patio is pleasant enough, but could use a little elbow grease (tables grimy) and more meticulous attention to plants and decor. Whoever came up with the notion of stools/benches without backs must have been NUTS.

We don't get here often but when we have we have never been disappointed. We of course ordered the Brussel Sprouts they are a must try (even if you don't think you like them). It was an early dinner before a movie so we split the Burger Royale and what a Burger it was with pork Belly, Guoda, Onion Jam and a Roasted Garlic Aioli. This is also a must try.

We got there late and we were treated the best we could ask for.. Paul our server is so awesome he made us feel relaxed even though we were the last ones there!! Thank you Paul.. The staff was very friendly and the chef delivered the best food delishes!!

Bo Beau Kitchen and Garden never disappoints. We hit the brunch this time and had a delectable fresh crepe with some kind of amazing fruit sauce. We also had a waffle and the whipped cream that was served alongside it was I think the tastiest fresh whipped cream I've ever had. It was obviously just whipped, and had a hint of rosemary or something blended in. WOW.

The food is awful, entrees are pre-made and then heated in a microwave. Thus, the food is not fresh and unevenly cooked. Drinks are over-priced. The ambiance is beautiful but I will never go here again. And I would not recommend this place to anyone. Also, we were overcharged more than our final bill on on our credit card.

We made the reservation on Sunday afternoon and I even called to make sure they saw I preferred a patio seat. We arrived at 7:58 pm and about 3 different bussers and 2 different waiters passed by in the next 20 minutes and no one offered us water, drinks or offered to take our order. We were starving and ended up leaving. We love the Cohn group but this was really disappointing I was very much looking forward to having dinner.

Poor quality food, drastically overpriced for what came out of the kitchen. The steak I had was simply bad -- poor quality meat, rubbery and flavorless. The veggies it was plated with were described as "haricot verts" on the menu, which should have translated to delicate, slender green beans but these too turned out to be waxy, tough, and flavorless. Other San Diego restaurants turn out a superior product at a lower price in higher-rent locations.

We went there for our anniversary and were unfortunately put at a table near several large family groups. Since it was our anniversary we were hoping for a nice table on the patio but didn't know to request it when we made our reservation. After I explained to the hostess she went out of her way to find us a nice table on the patio even though they were full. She also gave us champagne for our anniversary. We had the short ribs and the skirt steak and they were both delicious. We will be back!

The service was excellent and the food was great! We ordered two appetizers and two entrees. Everything was prepared to perfection. My wife ordered the Brussel Sprouts. I don't typically like Brussel Sprouts, but I ate more of them than she did. they have a really unique cocktail selection as well.
